I had planned for some time to write about the Japanese guitarist Kaori Muraji.
Now I have just discovered four playlists with hundres of great videos played by Kaori Muraji and I have started listening to this fantastic guitar player from Japan.
You can find a short biography on her official website:
Kaori Muraji is considered one of the most prominent classical guitarists of today, and her challenges and activities are always regarded with keen interest by the entire classical music community.
Born in Tokyo, Japan Kaori Muraji received her first lessons on the guitar from her father Noboru Muraji at the age of three. From ten, she continued her studies with the renowned guitarist Shinichi Fukuda.
These are some of my favorite videos with Kaori Muraji up to now:
